Seven Layer Dip Recipe


Seven Layer Dip Recipe

This seven layer dip is a popular appetizer for parties, potlucks, holidays and game day celebrations.

You can make your own guacamole for this recipe, or buy it. You can now find refrigerated, vacuum-sealed guacamole that is quite good at most supermarkets. Look for it in the produce section.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 2 cups low-fat sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 14 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1-1/2 cups store-bought or homemade guacamole
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives


  1. Place lettuce in the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate.

  2. In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream, chili powder and lime juice. Spread over the lettuce, leaving a 1/2-inch border all the way around.

  3. Sprinkle black beans over the sour cream layer.

  4. Top with guacamole, leaving a 1/4-inch border so you can see the sour cream layer underneath.

  5. Top with the tomatoes, then sprinkle with cheddar cheese, and top with the olives.

Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
